Microsoft Surface Book 13.5 inch Touchscreen Laptop (Intel Core i7-6600U 2.6 GHz, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, NVIDIA 1 GB Integrated Graphics, Windows 10 Pro) - Silver

13.5 inch PixelSense touchscreen display

ASUS Zephyrus GX531 240 Hz 15.6 Inch FHD Gaming Laptop (Intel i7-9750H, NVIDIA RTX 2080 8 GB, 1TB PCI-e SSD, 16 GB RAM, 4-Zone RGB Keyboard, Win 10)

With the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 8GB graphics and 9th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, ASUS Zephyrus S brings even more power and style to PC gaming

Clever design and craftsmanship are required to put high-end chips into the slim gaming Laptop ever; at just 14.95 to 15.75 mm thin, the metal chassis and CNC-milled unibody lid make ROG zephyrus s portable enough for life on the go and tough enough to survive everyday abuse

In one fluid Motion of hidden scissor-door hinges, it transforms from svelte sidekick to gaming powerhouse

While the slender bezels surrounding the display melt away, they also make the chassis more compact; zephyrus s is 19 mm narrower than its predecessor despite having the same 15.6 inch screen size

Opening the lid of zephyrus s reveals an underside vent that leads to a 5 mm-high air chamber; this additional air chamber creates 14 percent more space for air circulation, increases airflow by up to 22 percent and helps reduce internal temperatures by up to 11 percent
